Cool to see folks from different parts of the planet. 8)

I take it since there is no mention in the RW posts of new N scale announcements that there is nothing to report so far.

I'd imagine any announcements would be closer to the NTS later this week, than during the Convention.

Well, that 70 Tonner is a must have based on their 44T.

I think the BLMA refer is too late for my era, so no go there (Craig has plenty of my money anyways  ;) ).

Nothing else of much interest to me (so far).
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

John,
I've been following the Facebook page, and its a real gem!  Thanks to you and your associates for putting out there.  It never ceases to amaze me how generous some of my fellow modelers are these days with their images and information.

Okay, I call B.S. on the spur leading to the building at the bottom left.

Guess even the FastTracks guy couldn't figure out how to run directly across a set of points... :)
